Who is Crissa Jackson?
Crissa Jackson is a 31-year-old social media influencer by profession. Her social media is packed with several videos that she creates, predominantly focused on basketball. Fun fact, Jackson is the 13th woman to play for the Harlem Globetrotters, and has decided to play the game show with her "full-court vision", and by simply being herself.
Crissa first started playing basketball at the age of 7. She went to Globetrotters game as a child and always enjoyed watching them play. In time and as she grew older, Crissa joined a Chris ‘Handles’ Franklin’s basketball camp in Harrisburg. Franklin being a former Globetrotter himself is the main reason why Crissa wanted to play for the Harlem Globetrotters in the first place.
